Starscream looks more like Breakdown in those colours.

oh well, I said the same thing about Alternity Bumblebee. In his case though, I was able to rationalize it by including him with my Alternator collection. Not so with these guys.

Next to Convoy, these are the best Alternity releases to-date, IMO. I really like these. Looking forward to the obligatory repaints :)

Black cars are so passé, after Megatron and Optimus/Nemesis... (:|

I only have Optimus in red, planning on getting silver Megs, then I'll see what else I end up getting. Maybe Skywarp since I have so many of him as it is ;)

Why are they so....weird? I mean, aside from the overly-purpleness of Skywarp, they're great until you look at the head molds. They just kill it.

Also, are these the same toy images we've seen in scans before? Why do they keep showing such bad images of the Alternity line? They're not exactly selling them very well. I almost passed on Bumble until we saw actual reviews.

I know, I know... Japan. :roll:

I don't mind the seekers being cars, but I can't abide by Skywarp being replaced by Grimace.

I did pick up the Nemesis Prime variant because I have a pretty nice team of guys in that color scheme, but overall I'm just not impressed by Alternity. (:|

EPIC WIN. Screamer will join Black Convoy, Blade Megatron, & Cliff most surely. As for the designs, i'm still sticking with my homage theory. Convoy=G1(Red), Megatron=G2(Blue, just a strange look for him), Cliff/Bumble=Movieverse, Screamer/Skywarp=Beast Wars. That's my theory and i'm sticking to it. :CON: :KREMZEEK:

That would help his cause greatly. I like Skywarp much better than Starscream, but Starscream just looks better here. Plus I just noticed they actually have the same head mold, Skywarp's V-brow is just the same purple as the rest of his head so it doesn't stand out as much. Anyhow, I just canceled my order for Skywarp. Only getting Starscream...

I guess I'm in the minority here then, because I absolutely LOVE these two figures. The car mode is just plain awesome and I think the idea of having car based seekers is beyond awesome. They look great to me and I'm hoping for a general release of Thundercracker. However, I have a bad feeling he's going to be an exclusive of some sort and I'm going to have to pay an arm and a leg to complete the trio. :-(

I'm just not seeing Starscream and Skywarp in these. While they look good, their color schemes are not of those - if the purple would be more blueish purple with white head, I'd say it would make a great Thunderblast, however.
